Meritrax Security, a division of Merit Logistics, began service at another national grocery distribution center in Cincinnati, Ohio on October 27. The company continues to expand its client base by providing leading-edge security solutions to distribution and manufacturing facilities nationwide.
Reaching beyond typical security services, Meritrax uses proprietary technology developed by experts in the surveillance and protection of distribution centers and manufacturing plants. With its pioneering, multifaceted approach to security, Meritrax achieves the highest possible levels of transparency, control and asset protection for each client it serves.
As leading 3PL service providers for national grocery, retail and food distribution organizations for more than 25 years, the Merit Logistics team witnessed firsthand the compelling need for improved transparency and protection in supply chains. The observations and lessons learned served as the foundation for Meritrax Security.
“We recognized early on that distribution centers and manufacturing plants could greatly benefit from Merit Logistics’ proprietary systems, so we developed Meritrax as a new, technology-based approach to security,” says Cesar Scolari, Merit CEO. “Blending comprehensive asset protection with an unsurpassed level of visibility is a game-changer for supply chain security.”
In addition to traditional security detail, Meritrax delivers live gate-to-gate tracking and real-time reporting on all inbound and outbound activity. These are among many reports that are developed on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, securely stored, and easily accessible to clients via a cloud-based server.
The dynamic live tracking systems are what set Meritrax apart. The company’s proprietary online application enables clients to track every incoming shipment from the time it enters their facilities, through the unloading, breakdown and final put away processes. DC operators can view live reports in real time from the convenience of their computers, tablets or cell phone and instantly know the status of every carrier or shipment on their property.
“Typically, security services provide surface level protection,” says Senior Vice President Jason Giuliany. “Meritrax, however, works with the inbound receiving team to improve the overall process. We increase the efficiency and productivity of the supply chain by tracking every inbound and outbound shipment of the warehouse, reducing or eliminating detention times, and providing clients with 24-hour online visibility to maximize capacity and throughput.”
